100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

Austrian main electricity supplier Verbund and steel producer Voestalpine are planing by 2018 a hydrogen 6MW eletrolyser pilot plant and knowledge centre of 20 mln in Linz as “the only alternative to substitute coal in the steel hydorgen is hydrogen”. Key words of the collaboration: “Strommanagement: management of 200MW of intermittent power sources. Fro more information click here.
